Intumescent coatings

What are intumescent coatings?

Intumescent coatings provide an appearance similar to that of a paint finish. At ambient temperatures, they remain stable. However, in a fire situation, the increase in temperature causes a chemical reaction.

The intumescent coating expands to many times its original thickness. This provides an insulating foam-like coating or “char” which protects the substrate.

Protecting steelwork

The intumescent coating is designed to insulate the steel, and prevent the temperature of the steel from rising to a critical point at which structural failure becomes possible.
